Mayhem Mania 2021: Round 8

It must be Mayhem Mania season!

Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!

If you’re just tuning in, here’s how we got to this point.
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Opening Round
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 1
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 2
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 3
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 4
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 5
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 6
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 7

There are two “tiers” to Mayhem Mania. The 8-match “undercard”, where our players create and make changes to matches, and the SUPERCARD. To reach the SUPERCARD, a match must survive three rounds on the “undercard” without being altered in any way. So far, only one match has made it.

MAYHEM MANIA 2021 SUPERCARD

Raquel Gonzalez vs. Beth Phoenix
(Created by Tina Keys)

That’s a pretty darn good match, but we still have a lot of work to do.

Not everyone is eligible to use in Mayhem Mania. They must be under a WWE contract or otherwise within WWE’s orbit of influence. Also, everyone comes in their current physical/contractual/etc. state (We are ignoring COVID-19 diagnoses because this is supposed to be a fun diversion, not a reminder of the terrible things happening around us.). Simply put, if Vince McMahon can’t do it, you can’t do it!

Other wrestlers are not eligible to use because one of our players has sent them to SPACE JAIL.

* “Cell numbers” correspond with the numbers on our prize wheel.

Every week we spin our prize wheel to give one of the SPACE JAIL inmates a chance to escape, and we had an escape just before Round 8. Shane McMahon is now OUT of SPACE JAIL!

5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for the latest round of Mayhem Mania 2021. Each can make ONE of the following changes to our card:

– SWAP one wrestler or team with one in another match on the card or replace them with a wrestler or team not currently on the card
– ADD a wrestler or team to an existing match
– DELETE a match in its entirety and replace it with a new match using entirely new wrestlers
– SUBTRACT an individual from an exisiting match.
– MATCH SWAP: This year, we have a designated “cinematic match” slot on our card. A player can choose to swap an existing match on the card for the match currently in that “cinematic match” slot.

With all that business out of the way, here’s how things went down during Round 8 of Mayhem Mania.

Move #1 (by Chad The Shad)
ADD WALTER to Cesaro vs. Pete Dunne vs. Keith Lee

Move #2 (by Bobbyfjtown)
DELETE Bayley & Bad Bunny vs. Indi Hartwell & Dexter Lumis and CREATE Legado Del Fantasma vs. Breezango & RJ City

We have only one “normal” week left during Mayhem Mania 2021. The grand finale, Patreon In The Bank, is coming up on Tuesday, March 30. ONLY Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show will be invited to play during that round. If you want in, head to patreon.com/wrestlingmayhemshow.

Mayhem Mania 2021: Round 6

It must be Mayhem Mania season!

Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!

Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 1
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 2
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 3
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 4
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 5

There are two “tiers” to Mayhem Mania. The 8-match “undercard”, where our players create and make changes to matches, and the SUPERCARD. To reach the SUPERCARD, a match must survive three rounds on the “undercard” without being altered in any way. So far, only one match has made it.

Mayhem Mania 2021 SUPERCARD

Raquel Gonzalez vs. Beth Phoenix
(Created by Tina Keys)

That’s a pretty darn good match, but we still have a lot of work to do.

When a match graduates, its creator gets REWARDS! So, before Round 6 we had some business to take care of Tina.

First, she got to create a new match to fill the opening on our “undercard” left by the match that graduated. Tina created Big E vs. Bronson Reed.

Second, Tina got to book the first guest for the first-ever Mayhem Mania Watch Along! Tina decided to book Faye Jackson! Great choice!

Third, Tina got a ticket to send one individual to SPACE JAIL! Tina decided to send Asuka – by far, the most popular woman in the history of Mayhem Mania – to SPACE JAIL!

* “Cell numbers” correspond with the numbers on our prize wheel.

Tina said our players need to be challenged, and I really couldn’t agree more. Remember, hurt feelings are a key component of this process.

Anyone who is stuck in SPACE JAIL can NOT be booked in a match in Mayhem Mania. They can escape via a lucky spin of our prize wheel.

Under the rules of Mayhem Mania, everyone comes in their current physical, emotional and contractual state. That means anyone out with an injury is NOT eligible to use. (We are ignoring COVID-19 diagnoses because this is supposed to be a fun diversion, not a reminder of the terrible things happening around us.)

5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for the latest round of Mayhem Mania 2021. Each can make ONE of the following changes to our card:

– SWAP one wrestler or team with one in another match on the card or replace them with a wrestler or team not currently on the card
– ADD a wrestler or team to an existing match
– DELETE a match in its entirety and replace it with a new match using entirely new wrestlers
– SUBTRACT an individual from an exisiting match.
– MATCH SWAP: This year, we have a designated “cinematic match” slot on our card. A player can choose to swap an existing match on the card for the match currently in that “cinematic match” slot.

Finally, as part of her rewards for creating a graduated match, Tina got to hand out a dose of “punishment” to one of this week’s players. The “punishment” was that the player would have to use an individual randomly chosen for them by the “Wheel Of NXT UK”. Tina chose to punish The Rizz.

With all that business out of the way, let’s take a look at the changes made during Round SIX of Mayhem Mania 2021!

Move #1 (by Brandon)
ADD Damien Priest to Finn Balor vs. Aleister Black vs. Karrion Kross

Move #2 (by Mad Mike)
SWAP Roman Reigns and Cesaro

Move #3 (by Dave “D.P.” Podnar)
DELETE Tommaso Ciampa vs. Roman Reigns and CREATE Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae vs. Dexter Lumis vs. Indi Hartwell

Move #4 (by Sorgatron)
ADD Elias to Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kushida

Move #5 (by The Rizz)
(*The “Wheel Of NXT UK” decided he must book A-Kid)
DELETE Becky Lynch vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Toni Storm and CREATE A-Kid vs. Dolph Ziggler

Round 6 is in the books, and we have FIVE newly created matches on our “undercard”

Mad Mike will be back next week under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, which governs a match that does not survive the round in which it was created.

Mayhem Mania 2021: Round 5

It must be Mayhem Mania season!

Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!

If you’re just tuning in, here’s how we got to this point.
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Opening Round
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 1
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 2
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 3
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 4

Not every WWE wrestler is eligible to use. Under the rules of Mayhem Mania, everyone comes in their current physical, emotional and contractual state. That means anyone out with an injury is NOT eligible to use. (We are ignoring COVID-19 diagnoses because this is supposed to be a fun diversion, not a reminder of the terrible things happening around us.)

Others are not eligible to use for a different reason. Some of them are locked in SPACE JAIL.

* “Cell numbers” correspond with the numbers on our prize wheel.

SPACE JAIL is not a life sentence. A lucky spin of our prize wheel can free one of them, and it happened again before Round 5. Randy Orton escaped SPACE JAIL. Remember, there is no “Double Jeopardy” so he can’t be sent back.

5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for the latest round of Mayhem Mania 2021. Each can make ONE of the following changes to our card:

– SWAP one wrestler or team with one in another match on the card or replace them with a wrestler or team not currently on the card
– ADD a wrestler or team to an existing match
– DELETE a match in its entirety and replace it with a new match using entirely new wrestlers
– MATCH SWAP: This year, we have a designated “cinematic match” slot on our card. A player can choose to swap an existing match on the card for the match currently in that “cinematic match” slot.

With all that business out of the way, let’s take a look at the changes made during Round FIVE of Mayhem Mania 2021!

Move #1 (by Brandon)
DELETE Asuka vs. Meiko Satomura and CREATE Kushida vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Move #2 (by The Rizz)
DELETE Bad Bunny & Adam Pearce vs. Pat McAfee & Rob Gronkowski and CREATE Asuka vs. Meiko Satomura

Move #3 (by Alex Kahrs)
ADD Bad Bunny & Bayley to Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Johnny Mundo & Taya

Move #4 (by Bobbyfjtown)
SWAP Samoa Joe for “The Demon” Finn Balor

Move #5 (by HEEL Bradley)
DELETE Asuka vs. Meiko Satomura and CREATE Adam Cole vs. Daniel Bryan

Round 5 is in the books, and we have four newly created matches on our “undercard”

Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Johnny Mundo & Taya vs. Bad Bunny & Bayley

Adam Cole vs. Daniel Bryan

Kushida vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

We have three matches that survived the round without being altered in any way.

Tommaso Ciampa vs. Cesaro
(Created by Tina Keys)

Toni Storm vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Becky Lynch
(Created by Brandon)

Keith Lee vs. Pete Dunne vs. Roman Reigns
(Created by Alex Kahrs)

Finally, we have the FIRST match to graduate to this year’s SUPERCARD!

Raquel Gonzalez vs. Beth Phoenix
(Created by Tina Keys)

A match graduates if it survives THREE rounds without being altered in any way. Tina created our first graduated match and she will receive rewards! She will get to hand out a dose of PUNISHMENT to one of next week’s players. She will get a ticket to send one individual to SPACE JAIL. She’ll also get to name a participant in our first-ever Mayhem Mania WATCH PARTY! Tina will also create a new match to fill the open slot on our “undercard”. Our goal is to GRADUATE eight matches to our SUPERCARD by the time Mayhem Mania 2021 comes to an end.

The Rizz will be back next week under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, which governs a match that does not survive the round in which it was created.

One more note: SPACE JAIL has a new resident. Mad Mike used the ticket he earned in our Elimination Chamber Challenge contest mid-round, and sent Pat McAfee to SPACE JAIL.

It’s been a wild ride so far, but we’re finally making some progress with the first match now on our SUPERCARD. Keep following along to find out what happens next. Thanks for supporting Mayhem Mania!

Mayhem Mania 2021: Round 4

It must be Mayhem Mania season!

Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!

If you’re just tuning in, here’s how we got to this point.
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Opening Round
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 1
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 2
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 3

Not every WWE wrestler is eligible to use. Under the rules of Mayhem Mania, everyone comes in their current physical, emotional and contractual state. That means anyone out with an injury is NOT eligible to use. (We are ignoring COVID-19 diagnoses because this is supposed to be a fun diversion, not a reminder of the terrible things happening around us.)

Others are not eligible to use for a different reason. Some of them are locked in SPACE JAIL.

* “Cell numbers” correspond with the numbers on our prize wheel

SPACE JAIL is not a life sentence. A lucky spin of our prize wheel can free one of them. Fortunately, that did not happen before Round 4 and SPACE JAIL remains secure…for now.

5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for Round 4 of Mayhem Mania 2021. Each can make ONE of the following changes to our card:

– SWAP one wrestler or team with one in another match on the card or replace them with a wrestler or team not currently on the card
– ADD a wrestler or team to an existing match
– DELETE a match in its entirety and replace it with a new match using entirely new wrestlers
– MATCH SWAP: This year, we have a designated “cinematic match” slot on our card. A player can choose to swap an existing match on the card for the match currently in that “cinematic match” slot.

With all that business out of the way, let’s take a look at the changes made during Round FOUR of Mayhem Mania 2021!

Move #1 (by Brandon)
DELETE Io Shirai vs. Rey Mysterio and CREATE Toni Storm vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Becky Lynch

Move #2 (by Mad Mike)
DELETE Elias & Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal vs. Damien Priest & Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch and CREATE Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Johnny Mundo & Taya

Move #3 (by Tina Keys)
DELETE The IIconics vs. Riott Squad and CREATE Tommaso Ciampa vs. Cesaro

Move #4 (by The Rizz)
DELETE Finn Balor vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Timothy Thatcher vs. Ilja Dragunov and CREATE Asuka vs. Meiko Satomura

Move #5 (by Chad The Shad)
DELETE Mercedes Martinez vs. Sasha Banks and CREATE Pat McAfee & Rob Gronkowski vs. Adam Pearce & Bad Bunny

With Round 4 in the books, we now have FIVE new matches on our card.

Here are the three matches that survived Round 4 without being changed.

Raquel Gonzalez vs. Beth Phoenix
(Created by Tina Keys)

Samoa Joe vs. Karrion Kross vs. Aleister Black
(Created by “The Rev” Ron Hunt)

Keith Lee vs. Pete Dunne vs. Roman Reigns
(Created by Alex Kahrs)

If a match survives THREE rounds without being altered in any way, it will GRADUATE to our SUPERCARD. The creator of the match will receive rewards, including creating a new match to fill the open slot on our “undercard”. Our goal is to GRADUATE eight matches to our SUPERCARD by the time Mayhem Mania 2021 comes to an end.

One final note: Following Round 4, Chad The Shad used the two SPACE JAIL tickets he earned in our Royal Rumble contest to send BOTH IIconics – Peyton Royce and Billie Kay – to SPACE JAIL. In the process, the devious Chad exposed DEEP divides among the Mayhem Mania players in regards to how they desperate they are to see The IIconics in a Mayhem Mania.

Do The IIconics deserve to be in SPACE JAIL? What matches do you want to see us make? The only way to find out is to keep following Mayhem Mania 2021!

Mayhem Mania 2020: Round 8

This. Is. Mayhem Mania!

This is the ultimate fantasy booking game/competitive thought experiment. The goal is to create the best WrestleMania card possible – not necessarily to predict what WWE will do. That means we must play by the rules of our current reality. Everyone comes in their current (physical, emotional, psychological, etc.) state. Bottom line, if Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it.

Catch up on the lore! Check out the previous rounds of Mayhem Mania 2020!
It Begins! – Round 1 – Round 2 – Round 3 – Round 4 – Round 5 – Round 6 – Round 7

Mayhem Mania feels like it’s been flying by in the blink of an eye. We’re already into the penultimate round and on the verge of Patreon In The Bank! More on what to expect in a moment, but first let’s get down to this week’s business.

The goal is to get eight matches onto our SUPERCARD. All matches start out being created on our “undercard” where they can be tweaked, improved or outright deleted in favor of something else by our players. If a match survives three consecutive weeks without being altered in any way, it graduates to the SUPERCARD where it’s locked in. That also opens a slot on our “undercard” to create another match. Seems simple enough, but if you’ve been following along over the years you know it can get complicated.

Heading into Round 8 of Mayhem Mania, three matches had graduated to our SUPERCARD!

MAYHEM MANIA 2020 SUPERCARD!

This is much more than simply “fantasy booking”. All individuals come in their current contractual, physical, emotional, etc. state. So, if Vince McMahon can do it, you can do it. However, if Vince can NOT do it that means that individual is off limits. There’s room for some flexibility if you’re creative enough, and our players usually are.

Not every individual available to Vince is actually eligible, however. A select few have earned the ire of some of our players and been banished to SPACE JAIL. That means they can not be used in Mayhem Mania, but it’s not a life sentence. Every week we spin our special prize wheel to see if one of them can escape. It happens more often than you’d think, but this week SPACE JAIL remained secure and no one escaped.

With all that fun stuff out of the way, let’s get into the moves from Round 8 of Mayhem Mania 2020.

MAYHEM MANIA 2020: ROUND 8

MOVE 1 (by Thee Rizz)
SWAP Samoa Joe for Shinsuke Nakamura

MOVE 2 (by Mad Mike)
SWAP Keith Lee and Drew McIntyre

DELETE Finn Balor vs. Aleister Black and CREATE Akira Tozawa & KUSHIDA & “American Dragon” Daniel Bryan vs. Angel Garza & Andrade & Jorge Bolly

Move 5 (by Kyle from Pitt Fight)
ADD Finn Balor to A.J. Styles vs. Adam Cole

So, after those latest moves here are the five newly created matches following Round 8 of Mayhem Mania.

week6-4 (1)

Guess what? That last match has survived three consecutive weeks without being altered in any way and it is now the FOURTH match to GRADUATE to our SUPERCARD! Congratulations to “The Country Hammer” Jami Jameson for creating such a great match. He’ll be invited back next week to receive his rewards. Those include:

1. One ticket to send an individual to SPACE JAIL (*Those in SPACE JAIL are not eligible to be used during Mayhem Mania, but have a chance to escape as you’ll see in a moment)
2. Name an entrant for the 2nd annual Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble, to be held during the Mayhem Mania preshow. (*Individuals who are entered into the Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble can still be used in another Mayhem Mania match)
3. Hand out a dose of punishment to one of next week’s players! (*I can not in good conscience allow any Patreon supporter of the Wrestling Mayhem Show to be punished during Patreon In The Bank, so this portion of the reward system is being suspended in this instance)
4. Create a new match to fill to open 8th spot on our “undercard”

Also, Mad Mike’s move for Round 8 did not survive to the end of the round. Thus, the “Alex Kahrs Rule” must be invoked. Mad Mike is invited back next week (He was coming anyway since it’s Patreon In The Bank) and he will be granted the FINAL move of the Patreon In The Bank round!

Some of you may be asking yourselves, “What in the hell is Patreon In The Bank?”

Patreon In The Bank is the dramatic, cataclysmic finale to Mayhem Mania. Every Patreon supporter of the Wrestling Mayhem Show is invited to participate. That means we’ll have many more than our standard five players for the “normal” rounds.
